It was my pleasure to work with Don at the Post office. Don taught me how to be a carrier, and work with him as his relief carrier. He would set the standard each day, with hard work and kindness . Always had a kind word to all of his people on his route. God bless you, Lam Jones.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. I remember working with Mr. Lammey at the Gay Street Post Office in 1986. A very nice man.
